Tuesday, January 17, 2017

It's award season and with that comes great fashion, but let's not forget the real reason they are all there Movies! Best actor, best actress, and the caveatted best picture award will be given out. Here are the top 5 oscar nominated movies for best picture that are worth watching. 

La La Land- This movie has Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in it, and I love both of them. The movie is about a jazz pianist who falls for an aspiring actress in Los Angeles. I watched the trailer and loved it.

LovingThe story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple, whose challenge of their anti-miscegenation arrest for their marriage in Virginia led to a legal battle that would end at the US Supreme Court. This is an amazing true story, I still can't believe it used to be illegal to be in an interracial marriage. 

Hidden Figures- This movie is based on a true story about a team of African-American women provide NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program's first successful space mission. As you can probably tell I love inspiring true stories and this one looks really good. 

Lion-  Dev Patel was amazing in Slum Dog Millionaire and I am so happy he is back doing an interesting movie.  The movie is about a five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia; 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.

Live by Night- I may have picked this movie because I know its one I can watch with my boyfriend. We have been watching a lot of the show Moonshiners and this movie reminds me of that. It's about a group of Boston-bred gangsters set up shop in balmy Florida during the Prohibition era, facing off against the competition and the Ku Klux Klan. I can look past the fact that Ben Affleck is in it and only because the trailer looked good. 

What Movie do you hope wins? Which nominated films will you be watching?
